On the 2000 Dakota, the blower motor resistor is located under the center of the dash against the firewall. The dash does not have to be completely removed to access it, but it does need to tilted back in the brackets about 6 inches. Expect at least 2 hours for labor, it took me 4 for the entire disassemble, part exchange, and reassemble process. There is a PDF out there that explains the dash removal process.
